The Book Show #1236 - Jacqueline Winspear
Jacqueline Winspear's Maise Dobbs mysteries have been called by USA Today "less whodunits than why-dunits, more PD James than Agatha Christie." The books are set in "between the wars" England, time currently in the spotlight given the success of the Downton Abbey TV series on PBS.
Winspear's 9th Maisie Dobbs mystery is Elegy for Eddie: A Maisie Dobbs Novel , which tells the story of the kind and gentle Eddie petit who meets a violent death, which doesn't make sense being a man with the ability to calm any troubled horse.
